Learning and adapting new tricks with polymer clay is always fun! This month we are going to explore faux dichroic glass techniques using our favorite medium, polymer clay. This past year, Lisa Pavelka and I collaborated on a year long polymer clay project. To say “thank you” to all who participated, Lisa is joining us once again for a tutorial and giveaway (come back Friday).
The time has arrived … the final month of, the Pavelka Project. This month we a doing another more ‘open-ended’ project for you. This month we are using the book, Quick & Easy Gifts with Polymer Clay, and using the ornament idea. The “word” that you choose does NOT have to be a holiday word, maybe it’s your family name, child’s name, pet’s name, or word of the year. In any case, the ornament should be small enough to hang on a tree or on a door.
My take on Lisa’s tutorial is shown below. I used many similar techniques, but you can make your word ornament however you’d like. I’ve combined textured clay, stamping, & mica powders into a sophisticated take on the word “Noel” as in “the First Noel.” Lisa offers literally dozens of ideas throughout all her books on techniques, color palettes, and so much more. [Order your books here] I also have over 150 tutorials here on the site you could use to get ideas to decorate your jar.
Welcome back for another great month of the Pavelka Project! This month we a doing a technique based project that uses a favorite technique of many, Mokume Gane.
Welcome back for month 7 of our project. This month finds us with another tutorial that is based around a technique. What does this mean? It means that you can make whatever you want and enter it to win, as long as it uses the Sutton Slice Technique.
Welcome back for month 6 of our project. For you mixed media and jewelry lovers out there, this polymer clay Inro Amulet project is sure to be a winner.
